Creating Healthier Communities, Together

The Providence Mission reaches out beyond the walls of care settings to touch lives in the places where relief, comfort and care are needed. One important way we do this is through community benefit spending.

These investments not only support the health and well-being of our patients, but the whole community. Through programs and donations, Providence’s community benefit connects families with preventive care to keep them healthy, fills gaps in community services and provides opportunities that bring hope in difficult times.

When the Sisters of Providence began our tradition of caring nearly 160 years ago, their ministry greatly depended on partnering with others in the community who were committed to doing good. Today, we collaborate with social service and government agencies, charitable foundations, community organizations, universities and many other partners to identify the greatest needs and create solutions together.

2014 community benefit spending $848,483,649
